Default sub box

Does anyone know of a way to hold a sub box in my 96 se without screwing into the floor. I sometimes have to remove the box, i do not want to put holes all over my trunk?
Thanks

I actually don't have anything holding my box down. I have one twelve and the box is heavy enough to stay in one spot. Most sub + box combos are heavy enough to stand alone.

A little trick I learned is to screw one of those bolts with a hook or and O at the end into the top or bottom of the box and run a bungee cord from that to the metal behind the seats or below the rear dash.
